90 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2010

($35) Dark ruby-red. Smoked meat and dark chocolate dominate the nose. Lush, creamy and sweet; distinctly sexy and hedonistic malbec with a slightly high-toned quality that adds to its dark fruit appeal. Finishes with very supple tannins and impressive breadth and length.

This was my second experience with Malbec, and it was fabulous! I can't wait until it ages a couple more years!!
Not worth the money, IMHO

I let it breathe in a wine carafe for three hours and finished half. Next day it was still too acidic for my tastes. I do like a dry wine but this one had almost a sour taste. I prefer the Cruz Alta Grand Reserve 100% Malbec for half the price.

About Argentina

Until the early 1990s, Argentina's wine industry was focused inward, as the local market's thirst was sufficient to absorb the huge quantities of everyday drinking wine produced there.
